How old do children need to be to attend?
We offer class from age 4+ for girls and boys.
How do I join the club?
All children must attend a taster session. After the taster session they will either be allocated a place or can join the waiting list if there is no availibility in the class you wish to join.
Do you accept cards or cheques?
Unfortunately we only accept cash as we do NOT have card facilities and do not accept cheques. Monthly fees must be paid by standing order once you have been allocated a regular place.
How much does it cost?
All members pay a regular monthly fee and an annual membership fee (this is due in August each year irrespective of joining date). Annual fees are divided into 12 equal monthly payments to enable regular standing order payments.
Monthly Fees are £25, payable by standing order (for one session per week).
Gymnasts training several times per week pay: £50 for twice per week, £75 for three times a week and £75 for squad.
The Annual membership fee is £30. This includes club membership, BGA membership and insurance and West Midlands affiliation.
If I am unable to attend can I do a different session?
Unfortunately you are not able to change your session on a week by week basis. We cannot accommodate changes as all of our classes are full and we obviously cannot exceed our maximum class numbers, as this would compromise the quality of our sessions.
Do I need any special kit?
All members are expected to wear a club leotard within 4 weeks of joining. These are presently £33 for girls leotards and £36 for boys (as shorts come as standard). No other personal equipment needs to be purchased.
Do you break up for school holidays or ever close for any other reason?
We generally only close for a two week break over Christmas. Classes run as normal over all other school holidays except bank holidays.
In extreme weather conditions please check the web site to ensure we are open. There will be an alert on the home page if we are closed due to snow (so far we have only ever had to close once!).
Very occasionally we have to close due to other reasons such as BG competitions requiring several of our coaches to take competing children or attend competitions as officials or Judges. In these circumstances notices will be put up in advance.
Is there anything else I need to do before joining the club?
All members are expected to abide by club rules. These can be found here. Please ensure you read them before your first session
